Leona Lee Marguerite Waddell (Montgomery)

February 5, 1929 - July 23, 2019


It is with great sorrow that the family of Leona (Lee) Waddell of Nelson, BC announce her peaceful passing on July 23, 2019.

Lee suffered a stroke in April of this year and fought a determined battle to gain back her good health and independence.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Nelson United Church on August 31, 2019 at 11:00 am in order to make sure her family and friends from across Canada can be here.

The family would like to thank the Kootenay Lake Hospital, The Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, the Kelowna Rehab Centre and Mountain Lakes for the compassionate care Lee received.  Although Lee had lost her ability to speak she expressed her thanks through her loving spirit that all her caregivers recognized.

Lee is survived by her loving sister, Shirley of Calgary, sister in law Doreen of Calgary, Son Randy (Theresa) of Yellowknife, son David (Bonnie) of Red Deer, Grandchildren: Robert (Susan), Raena, Scott (Samantha), Adam (Mandelle) and Jeffrey, Great Grandchildren: Joshua, Logan, Liam, Parker, Caelan, Cordelia, Rory, Briar, Quinn and Henley, the Kalyniuk family and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins and many dear friends from Nelson who have been a great support to the family during the last 3 ½ months.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Nelson United Church, Nelson Senior Citizen’s Branch #51, Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation, or an animal shelter of your choice. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence.

Relation: Friends of the family

David and Randy and all your family, our condolences at this very sad time of the loss of your Mother. The few times we had the pleasure of spending time with Lee was always a pleasant time. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. We know it’s a sad time and she will be missed but your memories will hold her dear in you hearts forever.

From: Brad & Carol Howard
Relation: Great friend

Lee was a wonderful friend to Carol and I. We shared a lot of memories and laughs. She loved to laugh. It is rare to get so close to a person in the short time frame we had, but Lee made friendship easy. Warm, welcoming, capable of so much. Lee will be very missed by both of us.
